Obituary

Mrs. Richard Cullen and Mrs. Fred Smith were in Waterbury yesterday to attend the funeral of John Travers, their uncle. It was erroneously stated in newspaper reports that Mrs. Mary O'Neill, his sister is a cripple. She is very smart for a woman of her age, 85 years, and does all her house work, and she was never crippled in any way.
